    Agree with Fyodor, as soon as I read a SO is wonderful, or worse, amazing, I know it’s going to be bad.

    He’s not wonderful, he’s abusive. You deserve better. Leave.

    This requires verb tense check – He WAS wonderful. Now he’s a dick (because he showed his true self).

    When someone has a drinking problem, it is progressive and gets worse and worse over time. He will more than likely become more and more abusive and may also end up with severe health issues.(My lifelong best friend died from drinking. She was young and no one really knew how bad it was until it was too late to save her.)I knew of a woman whose husband fell asleep on the couch and never woke up…he died of sudden liver failure at 34. If you don’t want to spend the rest of your life trying to save this man from himself.(which is a losing battle) You should listen to what everyone says and move on.

    He does not sound like a nice person. I would not want to spend my life with someone like this. He is treating you terribly. I say dump him and find a nice guy who respects you.

    He thinks he’s bought your compliance with his money. He’s literally treating you like men usually treat call girls and sugar babies. He helps you out, and you are supposed to repay him with a lack of fight or respect for yourself and unwavering support for him. What you’ve described here is the caricature of adult trust fund children. Like he’s the shitty husband in a novel about a woman finding herself and getting a new dude.

    Get a new dude.

    Find someone who doesn’t think money is transactional in your relationship.
